Japanese Bigeye, anyone?

Phishy Business writes:

We have an opportunity to bring in a very rare fish IF someone is interested enough to preorder it. This is the first time I've ever heard of a Japanese Bigeye, Pristigenys niphonia, being available to the hobby, as they are typically found in waters no less than 250 feet deep. Frankly, this is not a cheap fish, and is likely of interest to hardcore collectors. $899. If interested, please email and we will work out the details.

Potential buyers should know this species gets to about a 25cm (10 inches) - although they are fairly stationary and thus do not require lots of swimming space - and requires dimly lit environment.
